Description

Reopened in 2008, the International Perfumery Museum is depicted by an extremely modern layout, the work of Frédéric Jung. A "scented preamble" is followed by a presentation of plants used in the perfume industry. Next is a rotating chronological exhibition of the museum's 50,000-strong holdings (look out for Marie-Antoinette's travel essentials and the game of Koh-Do (literally the "way of the incense")); and a fine collection of bottles.
